There is speculation the IRA could issue a statement on its future intentions before the end of the month.

The speculation has been sparked by the recent return to Belfast of General John De Chastelain - the Chairman of the Decommissioning Body.

An internal debate is believed to be ongoing within the Provisional movement to decide whether democratic means are the only way forward.

It is thought the IRA will not announce complete disbandment but will instead convert to an organisation that would be one of remembrance.
